. i mean this moment really reminds me of that moment in 2008 when john mccain had his crazy reaction to the economic crash and wanted to suspend his campaign and go back to washington and really looked like he didn't understand what was at stake or what was going on. mitt romney looked ridiculous at that rally today. i mean he was talking about cleaning up -- one time he had to clean up a football field of rubbish and comparing that to disaster relief and i'm not somebody -- i think it's kind of silly when we say we can't play politics at this moment. there's always politics and right now we're having an election. we're having a debate over the future of our society and things like disaster relief are really quite pertinent, so it's not that he can't to me it's not that he can't campaign but go out there and take questions about what you want to do with fema and go out and defend your me first, devolve to the states attitude. it's a good time to have a debate about it but he's scared so he won't do it. >> you know, this storm really seems to have taken the shirts off a lot of politic

internal targets and the romney campaign is doing much better than john mccain did in 2008. that secondary aspect, doing better than john mccain is insufficient. john mccain did virtually nothing in early voting. the romney campaign is doing much better but it's a low bar. the obama campaign feels very good about its own metrics and believes by the time election day actually arrives, they'll have sizeable leads in new hampshire, iowa, nevada and possibly even in florida, enough to carry those states across the finish line. >> major, thanks. cbs is projecting that four out of ten voters will have voted by election day. >> 31% in 2008, could be as high as 40%. this is becoming a huge and important trend in american presidential politics. >> thank you, major. >> major garret, thank you so much. >>> time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. los angeles times says a gunman opened fire at a halloween party on the university of southern california campus. four people were wounded and two people have been detained. officials shut down the campus and urged students to

in the country to have voted for john carey in 2004 and john mccain in 2008, the only district that slipped from democratic to republican in between those two elections. was are the voters president wants, clinging to their guns and religion, the kind of white working-class workers that the president is having the most trouble connecting with. the obama campaign is advertising as well. they have a turnout machine in philadelphia. pacs don't want the obama campaign to gin up their turnout machine. i think that machine will start to get engaged and that machine will drive president obama's margin down there. that's in southeastern pennsylvania. host: we're talking about an october surprise in campaign 2012 and the history of it. this on twitter -- guest: she's probably right. many people aboard a voted. there is 1 weeks ago. the average american is paying attention to something other than politics, whether it's their own economic situation or recovering from storm damage in a swing state like virginia or new hampshire. -- many people have voted already. ballistics of trying to get around the place
was beating john mccain in early voting by 19 points. democrats are famous for their get out the vote effort that precedes election today, early voting tends to favor them. look how it did in 08 obama 19 at that time. fast ford today, governor romney is beating president obama by 7 points marking a 26-point slide for the commander-in-chief. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news.com. is that correct, chris? the early voting tends to favor the democrats. it seems like republicans don't like early voting, they complain about it because it favors the other side but not so according to this poll in this election. >> that is exactly right, megyn. the truth is democrats have long pushed to extend voting as long as possible. no election day, they want election month. they want more times to get their voters to the polls. there are more democrats than republicans. republicans vote with higher intensity usually than democrats. when we see a pupl lik number like pew's that the republican candidate has gone ahead when you're talking about a challenger
that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized systems are used almost everywhere. we have eliminated paper ballots accept as a backup in case of emergency. we
% of the vote. and barack obama just carried ohio four years ago, but because john mccain had really done no outreach to the evangelicals and they were loaded up on our colleague mike huckabee, they stayed home. 300,000 evangelicals in ohio didn't vote in 2008. obama won by 260,000 votes. if they come out in large numbers more romney and ryan in ohio next tuesday, as they did for george bush in 2004 and 2000, i think that romney could take that state. stuart: now, are the evangelicals voting positively for mitt romney? because they like mitt romney? or are they voting negatively against president obama? because they don't like president obama? >> well, the good news for romney is that it's a combination of both. romney has done outreach to them. and richard land of the southern baptist convention has endorsed him. did that yesterday. he met with billy graham about three weeks ago, graham is publicly supporting him. and i'm told that his selection of paul ryan was a huge plus, because ryan is a practicing catholic, very religious, the evangelicals, like paul ryan. on the negative side, the
the same poll. and barack obama was leading john mccain among early voters. in several key states ob dwrauma had a huge lead. he needs to do that again. romney likely to win amongst those voter who's go to the polls on election day itself. he build up a lead that his opponent can't overtake him on election day. i was in ohio. the campaign was making a huge deal. the president saying on the stump and campaign officials were saying it. people going door to door were pushing early voting. >> unless this reflects early voters in ohio going to tell us if this could with 52-46. >> that is light. -- right. ohio during this storm time, this is ads and romney ran about the auto bailout whether or not goits tok shipped to china. there has been a reaction. there has been gm and chrysler officials saying ad isn't true, it's false. a tremendous push back and more as to the obama campaign. i think that that is a state where i think there is enough momentum to be coasting if not towards victory, that is a tricky, i think romney people racked up early votes in ohio because that is a critical state.

either for john mccain or barack obama in 2008. one entire side of the voting population in this upcoming election is the portion of our country that lives on the edge. as we continue to cope with and rescue people from and now recover bodies from, the impact of this one storm on the most populated part of america's coastline today, the governor of new york state has been again and again trying to draw people's attention to this not being just one event, but a challenge for the whole country that events like this might now be happening with increased frequency. not just in new york, but in all of these heavily populated places, that before now had a fairly predictable relationship with the body of water, with the ocean, that they abut. what is that predictability? that balanced and expectation, developed over the past couple of centuries, and these cities on the water is now over. mostly this gets talked about in terms of the people denying that climate change is a real thing, and big talk about whether we should try to stop climate change and global warming. but that may be getting resol
john mccain suddenly disappeared from the campaign for about a month when someone brought up mr. adelson who was in is in jerusalem with his millions of dollars and mccain said that has nothing to do with support for israel. that money is from china. mr. adelson doesn't have anything. that is the sands corporation. does anyone remember the last time frank sinatra sang at the sands? i mean right now it's an old funky hotel. motel six doesn't have that many bed bugs and he said i was just at the sands. where does the sands get these millions in billions? the sands corporation at that little footprint, that piece of dirt in vegas but all their money is from macau, from china. you don't operate in china unless you are actually fronting for the princelings of the politburo. we know where that money has come from and we know why mr. romney, don't we? don't we? barack obama just put massive tariffs on auto parts from china and for all the china bashing that mr. romney is going to be doing tonight, take my word for it, he refused to back the tariffs on auto parts is almost all the auto
obama beat john mccain in 2008 in cuyahoga county by a larger number of votes and he won the entire state. so it's really important for cuyahoga county. but a very important place for him to run up those margins. we will see bill clinton campaign up in akron, ohio, even further north and east of cleveland. a high point in this state. >> what we talk a lot about is what we add journalists and the talking class talk about what regular americans, ohio and they're talking about. of all the people i spoke with yesterday, only one person brought up hurricane sandy. a lot of attention was paid to michael bloomberg's endorsement. the big picture, do those kinds of things resinate? do they matter, do you think? >> i think on a text tual level, the message coming out of hurricane sandy was bipartisanship. even if they're not monitoring events as closely here as they are in the east, they're getting kind of a good feeling about the president's ability to work with people on the other side of the section. and as far as mike bloomberg goes, viewish voters are important in ohio and jewish busines
, just like john mccain. he made that exact same vote. we voted to make sure we did not go into a double-dip recession and lead the world into a global recession. i did not support sequestration. sequestration is based on the tea party premise that you do not raise revenues whatsoever. i believe we need to take a balanced approach. we are going to need to increase revenues, and we will need to cut agency budgets and stomach some cuts that many democrats are not going to be happy about. that is the only way we get to where we need to be on this. i think it is incumbent upon myself and everyone else in congress to get back to work after this election and come up with a solution that has both of those pieces. cuts and revenues, rather than embraces the tea party sequestration approach. >> do you believe it is possible to make medicare sustainable well into the future without converting it into a voucher system? would you ever support a voucher system? on it, it is there for them without any changes unless they want those kinds of changes. the congressman did not ask any seniors whether they
campaign is hitting its own targets and the romney campaign is doing better than john mccain in 2008. that secondary aspect doesn't mean much. by the time election day actually arrives, they will have sizable lead in new hampshire, iowa, nevada and possibly in florida enough to carry those states across the finish line. >> major, thanks. cbs is projecting that four out of ten voters will have voted by election day so that -- >> 31% in 2008, could be as high as 40%. this is a huge trend in american politics. >> major garrett thank you so much. time now to show you this morning's headlines from around the globe. the "los angeles times" says a gunman opened fire at a halloween party on the university of southern cal university. two people have been detained. hours later they gave the all clear. >>> the "philadelphia inquirer" reports jerry sandusky has been transferred to maximum security prison that houses most of pennsylvania's death row inmates. he's serving a 30 year sentence for child molestation. >> the "wall street journal" reports on a major step towards personalized medicine. t
with the "washington post" piece. republicans say that romney's team is far ahead of what senator john mccain had in place for years ago. but the extent of the organization and voter contact for the rahm the folks is miles ahead of where mccain was. there is no comparison. given there was a tough primary fight there for the republicans, that possibly they have a better ground game in place than the democrats. guest: that is not true. the democrats and president obama have been on the ground since the primary ended in february. the classic story was he drove through manchester and was locked, shut and the sides were down. the obama campaign was up and running. in knocking on doors, making phone calls. engaged in voter contacts for months and months before the obama campaign came back to new hampshire. i would say the republicans are talking of a good ground game, but the reality is the obama ground game is much better, and that will be a crucial factor when obama wins here next tuesday. host: given that obama won the state in 2008 by nine percentage points, and the economy is not that bad in new h
is working hard, and frankly has to work harder than he did in 2008. he won new hampshire over john mccain by a 10% lead. right now, polls show he has a slight lead, but statistically, the race is tied up between him and mitt romney. and that is why this really pretty small battleground state, the electoral votes, over 270 are needed, is getting a lot of attention from both candidates. here at this rally, president obama -- he talked about fees that the governor put in place, while he was in charge of the state. here is what the president said. >> there were higher fees for gas. there were higher fees for milk. there were higher fees for blind people who needed to get a certificate that they were blind. he raised fees to get a birth certificate, which would have been expensive for me. >> reporter: so that is a line, fred, that got some laughter here from his crowd of supporters, was not well received. no surprise, by the romney campaign. a spokesperson calling the attack laughable, saying "as governor mitt romney worked with democrats to close a 3 billion deficit, balanced budget by cuttin
, and essentially, it trounced john mccain's network. we were talking about contacts, volunteers, get out the vote machine. now, you bring up this point, and i thought it was interesting. you say he didn't really need all of that because there was enough voter enthusiasm and bush fatigue to put him over the top anyway, but you make the point here that you say the ground game, a superior ground game from this president, is absolutely critical. why the difference this go-round? >> well, the political rule of thumb is that your ground game, your field organization, can get you probably about two points above what you're polling or above what you would otherwise get. this is going to be a very close election. a lot of polls are showing it tied nationally. down to the wire in a lot of battleground states. you need those two points. in 2008 when obama really blew out mccain in a lot of battleground states, it was really sort of icing on the cake to have this superior organization and there's even a political scientist who has done a study and found that obama would have won that election anyway even wit
suggests this too. they are not going to lose by the same margins that john mccain did, even in a place like illinois, where mccain lost some of these districts by 20 points. that's not going to happen this year, so you can see those numbers going up, even in states that romney will lose, but because some of the states are completely off the map, places like pennsylvania, michigan, that means his pathway again has to go through a place like colorado, nevada, or ohio. >> you know, one of the problems with writing a column a couple times a week is you're sort of on the record, and a fewer months ago, i wrote a column and i was talking about all these people that are spinning so much time parsing together combinations of electoral votes, like they were trying to solve a rubics cube or something and i pointed out that in 53 out of knife 6 presidential election -- 56 presidential electionings, the popular vote and electoral vote went the same way and that works out to 95%. could it happen? of course it could happen but it's very, very unlikely, but now, i think that there's a fair chance of
